Mo Farah reveals he entered the UK illegally

In a documentary produced by the BBC and Red Bull Studios, which airs in the UK on Wednesdays, Mo Farah reveals some of the darkest moments of his childhood. The quadruple Olympic champion in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters (2012 and 2016) first states that his real name is Hussein Abdi Kahin.

But at the age of eight or nine, he was taken to Djibouti while living in Somalia with his parents and two brothers. It is from this East African country that he flies to the United Kingdom with a woman he does not know and with whom he has no family ties. So this woman smuggles him to the United Kingdom and tells him that his name is Mohammed Farah, resulting in false papers.
